Just call them good-guy Chicago Bears. 

After several players traveled to tornado ravaged towns in downstate Illinois on Monday, the Peoria Journal Star reports the team will again be showing support in their game in St. Louis on Sunday. 

According to the report, the team has reached out to the Washington High School athletics department, asking to be sent a logo for Bears team members to wear on t-shirts in pre- and postgame press conferences. The school's mascot, a black panther, is wrapped around the high school's orange "W" in the logo. 

The article notes the players will wear the logo as a "sign of solidarity" with the town, where a tornado killed one person and damaged thousands of homes. It also reports, according to the NFL rulebook, the Bears will have to gain approval through the league to display the logos.
